    Yeah he did it

    That's bullshit. Not something they "them" can police. There are a few of us who post. And a bunch who lurk...

    How bad are oversized hanks?

    No big deal at all. Just check the tack setback is correct as lots of guys don't change that when swapping luff systems

    Dodger or no?

    Have a mk1 Cal 34. Came with a dodger. It stays in my garage and I used it on 1 Catalina trip ( out of 3 in the past year or so) . There are a couple issues with it on the 34. The side decks are quite narrow and the dodger made getting in and out of the cockpit far more difficult. It is made to be just under the boom, and our boat has been modified with a wheel. Visibility driving is horrible. The Cal cockpit is also quite long, so it didn't provide much protection in a large % of cockpit. I would recommend just skipping it and heading out. Easy to add later if you really want. As far a shade at anchor, just get a really nice sun shade with battens that is simple to put up. I think the extra cabin top hatch on the mk3 would be the biggest help to airflow besides a windscoop on the forward hatch. We run a couple small 12v fans if it gets real hot

    Jib Roller Furler Battens

    For a jib that will live up on a furler, go with vert battens. The rollers from rbs don't hold up if left rolled for long periods. Even the c-tech version is recommended to be stored flat when possible. And don't even bother with "flattens"

    Calculating sail area for balanced reefing

    Does your sail have battens?

    Roller furler jib

    34' masthead rig. 80% cruise, 20% club race. Boat came with a harken furler and shatered sails. We have a 145 for most sailing and a 115 for breeze on sailing which is rare here. We sail every 3 weeks or so in the winter and more like once a week in the spring, summer and fall. The small jib has a uv cover, but the big one does not. I store both in the laz and choose whichever is appropriate for the forecast. We don't sail partially furled. I would reef first. Works for us.

    Reciprocity Inequality

    Member of a wyc as well and this is the exact feeling I have (except we are fortunate to be year round and maintain a real family feel with most of the staff, so service is usually very good)
